Glassfabriken: Nobel Prize ice cream!
"The Lion and the Bear" ice cream has changed its name to Glassfabriken but is still considered one of the best in Sweden (which means a lot in one of the world's most ice cream consuming countries) and so good that they have made the Nobel dinner desserts until 2002 when it was decided to not have ice cream at all for some reason. They sell the ice cream and sorbets in cartons in selected big city supermarkets and ice cream parlours but it is to their own ice cream cafes in Malmo or Goteborg you want to go. Loads of flavours to chose from and let me tell you it's difficult! Many are Italian inspired and they have also won Italian prizes.
The only reason it's not a "great experience" is that they once closed right in front of my five-year-old who was a bit late from swimming that day. Since we often go there and she was only five at the time, I thought this a bit sour even if I know they want to go home. It's not as if it takes a long time for her to order since all she ever wants is the vanilla :-))) They close too early in summer for me basically.
